So wait a minute...how were they 6,000+ off?

Reminds me of the LT game in 2014 where they deflated attendance to below 10,000...

That is weird.

The irony is that we get accused of fudging attendance numbers as much as any school in the country, and our own athletic department may be lowballing it. If we hadn't lived through it, who would believe it?

How could the count be 6k off? Was 39k what LF told UAB and now they're changing it?

They forgot to count the moths and extra paramedics needed to carry off the Ala St players. Those players ironically whom always got injured to slow down UAB drives and when they were 3rd and long or 4th and 1.

Yes, sorry. We will be issuing a correction soon. Someone in the office counted tailgaters - specifically against
@Legion_Field policy. Our apologies for the confusion.

Do we know the final verdict on the attendance? This is some strange stuff if they discounted the numbers due to tailgating. Color me confused.

Were do they get these people from who do the counts? Do they just find people off the street? Just judging by the parking situation I observed, I guessed we had more than Alabama A&M. But you never know how many are there just to tailgate.

RE: UAB-ASU attendance adjustment?
perhaps UAB was using scanned ticket numbers and LF was counting people as they came into the parking lot (otherwise i dont see how tailgaters are relevant)?
I know of many people that tailgated but did not go into the game

That's what I was thinking. How in the heck did they count the people tailgating? Just BS all around IMO.

I think that's a parody Legion Field account.

Well we typically do understate so may be closer to true totals as crowd in stands did look a little fuller than AAM game

It has to be a parody account. I’d hope they wouldn’t post tweets like this if it was Legion Field’s actual account .

How hard is it to get the attendance number? Considering those little machines called "turnstiles" do the counting for you, all one should have to do is tally the numbers from them.

I think there's a conspiracy afoot here....someone is attempting to grossly inflate the attendance number, and then use that inflated number to push for "more seats on the home side...."

I believe it is. It says the account was created in February. I think there was a legit Legion Field account previously, which may have had a blue checkmark.
